For two seconds, I thought that you were being serious.

You don't need to upgrade the brick.

Whats an E-brake? You must mean that pedal next to my clutch on the left that just lays on the floor unless I pull it up then it flopps back down like a dead gopher?

I am shocked that someone actually has their owners manual. I was under the impression they never made one for YJs since theyre the worlds easiest vehicle to operate.

Well here's what I've always done. I just coast into my parking spot with the clutch in and stick in neutral. Using the regular brakes to actually stop. Shut it off, move my left foot from the clutch to the e-brake, and set the e-brake. Last thing is to shift it into 1st. I find that most trannies will go right in if it was coasted into your parking spot. Most likely because of the swirling oil in them, lines everything up.

I actually forgot to put it in gear the other day and it rolled off on me while I was in the store. The parking lot has a bit of slope just for drainage. Nothing you could actually see, but it was just enough. My brakes are new on all 4 corners, and I've had the e-brake recall. So I decided that the jeep e-brakes are just plain weak, period full stop.

i usually just put mine in park and turn the engine off and walk away.
but when we had our wrangler, we would attach the winch to the nearest tree/fire hydrant/telephone pole for reinforcement. then we would take some chain and attach one end to the jeep and one end to a tree/fire hydrant/telephone pole or a house if it was on a hill.

My Jeep uses the gas your hybrid saves.

Personally I find the BEST way to park, and ensure you won't roll away, is to:

Well manuals dont have "park" that is why he was asking.
The closest thing to park on a manual is ebrake and a selected gear.
And really, you used your winch? Seems kinda drastic, and dumb, no offence intended.

I flipped mine over in a ditch once and even though I stuck the landing on all 4 wheels (one was flat, deduct 2 points) I didn't need to set the e-brake or take it out of 4th. It was winter in Wisconsin, that sucker wasn't going anywhere.
